I'd say many more teams than just the Saints. They're just the fools who got caught, agreed to correct it and failed to correct it. Funny that it's not even the bounties that earned them this punishment, but the fact that they were told to stop and didn't.

But clearly a lot of other teams are doing it, every locker room may call it something different, or offer different incentives for different results, but it happens in many more rooms than just New Orleans.

That's why I don't have a big problem with it, it's an inherently violent game played by extremely competitive men. They all know what's going on before they step on the field. The league wants to act like it's an outrage though and this is the only time it's happened, kind of like how they were so mad about the show "Playmakers", sometimes the NFL just can't come to terms with reality.
